This fiery Rochester-based six-piece delivers a dub-infused reggae-rock experience. The group claims bands like Sublime, Slightly Stoopid, and Long Beach Dub All-Stars as major influences, but its final product is definitely on a shelf of its own. Personal Blend has caused quite a stir with its high-energy, dance-crazed performances, so get ready to do some shaking yourself. Believe me, despite its moniker, the band's musical mash up has mass appeal.
Personal Blend performs with Upward Groove Wednesday, August 21, 8:30 p.m. at the Club at Water Street, 204 N. Water St. $5-$7. waterstreetmusic.com.
